Joao Cancelo to leave Manchester City one way or another

Transfer specialist Fabrizio Romano reports that Joao Cancelo will leave Manchester City this summer.

In his CaughtOffside column he states:

“The decision is very clear on both the player and club side. They’re now looking for the best solution.”

While Barcelona are reportedly keen on bringing the Portuguese right-back to Spain, it will depend on financial fair play.

The Spanish club secured City captain Ilkay Gundogan yesterday, and they could add another blue.

A testament to Manchester City and their recruitment as big clubs target City “left-overs”.

Inside sources reveal that should no reasonable offers come in for Joao Cancelo, another loan move would be considered.

Rumours surfaced in January that there was a “bust up” between the player and Pep Guardiola. Though both player and club deny the rumours.

He was quickly and unexpectedly shipped out on load to Bayern Munich in the winter transfer window. But received an icy reception upon his return to the Etihad in the Champions League quarter-final.
